Senior Fellow of Practice in Public Policy

Blavatnik School of Government, Radcliffe Observatory Quarter, Woodstock Road, Oxford, OX2 6GG

About the role

The Blavatnik School of Government seeks to appoint a Senior Fellow of Practice in Public Policy (individuals can apply for the Professor of Practice title). The individual appointed will play a significant leadership role in the School, including teaching, directing and overseeing teaching programmes (whether for senior practitioners or for degrees) and/or other projects within the School, as well as initiating and building projects which translate practice to knowledge and vice versa.

This Senior Fellow of Practice will lead in the planning, development, and delivery of programmes and specific courses in the School, including (but not exclusively) impactful executive teaching programmes aimed at senior leaders; develop materials relevant to the needs of policymakers and senior practitioners, such as articles in practitioner-orientated publications and other impactful knowledge-to-practice outputs; and engage actively with leading practitioners in governments and other agencies across the world, to stay in touch with the challenges they face and hone the School's capacity to support them to do better.

About you

You will be an outstanding and innovative teacher of both degree and executive programmes for public leaders, with a track record of setting the highest standards and effectively supporting students to achieve them. You will have exceptional ability to communicate to practitioners, public leaders, politicians, and civil servants, and to engage in practice-focused analysis and writing. You will be excellent colleagues, with demonstrated success in collaborative working such as co-teaching, co-directing teaching programmes, co-authoring policy and practice publications (as well as other materials), mentoring of early career faculty, and public policy engagement.

You will bring practitioner experience at a high level with a track record of helping governments improve. You will have experience of teaching senior practitioners (including course development, delivery and review) and a proven ability to reflect upon and systematise lessons from their practice, and from the practice of others.

You will have an international reputation in their field and one that will enhance the School's reputation for excellence in teaching and public engagement. You will have a significant and influential track record of professional experience beyond the higher education sector; and a range of published outputs recognised as world-leading in the context of professional practice and analysis.
